Enticing new rewards await the most courageous LEGO minifigures in LEGO Universe, as new equipment, abilities and backpack slots are unlocked. If players have ever sought a way to display their heroics, this is the perfect chance!

“We love to challenge our LEGO Universe builders. We’re regularly adding new content and new bricks for players to continuously evolve and tap into their innermost creativity,” said Jordan Itkowitz, Design Director of LEGO Universe. “With the addition of the leveling system, we’re looking to inspire players to explore deeper into the universe, and tackle more difficult goals than they may have considered before.”

Four new Faction Kits will be at the disposal of dedicated Nexus Force alliance members in LEGO Universe. Specialized Adventurer, Shinobi, Inventor and Space Ranger kits are now available to players who have aligned with one of the four Nexus Force factions, and players are called upon to power up through three ranks to explore the new gear, powers and abilities.

An exciting, yet terrifying challenge has also presented itself to the LEGO Universe community in the new instance in Avant Gardens, leading up to a massive, eight-legged battle with the sinister Spider Queen. It’s the latest way to battle chaos with creativity, and players better bring their imagination along to score a win!
